A WREXHAM curry house has been chosen as the best Indian restaurant in North Wales - the latest in a long line of successes for the business.

Ijazz, located on Egerton Street, has been based in the area for five years now having set up shop back in October 2016.

Since then, the business has won the Asian Curry Award for best Indian restaurant in Wales in 2018 and 2019.

Now, it can add 'Indian Restaurant of the Year' for North Wales to its list of honours, having scooped that prize at the National Curry Awards held at the House of Lords on September 15.

The awards ceremony was attended by politicians such as Sir Alan Campbell MP, Mary Robinson MP and Sarah Atherton MP and her team as well as people in the business, along with the restaurant owners and their staff from all over the country.

The Asian catering industry is valued at around £5 billion. Despite this, over time, the industry has witnessed a steep decline, largely attributed to the shortage of skilled workers and a lack of investment in training. In accordance with this, the NCA aims to help further encourage new generations to get excited and involved within this industry.

The National Curry Awards was launched in order to promote the businesses of the Asian catering industry as well as highlighting its creative and talented chefs. The NCA winners represent the best that can be achieved through dedication to creating delectable cuisine and to providing first-class customer service.

Entries to the NCA come from all over the UK as we celebrate both those at the forefront of the Asian catering industry and those who work behind the scenes.

The event organiser, Mohammed Chowdhury, gives special thanks to this year’s event sponsors: one of the UK’s catering industry’s leading suppliers, Eurofoods Group and the excellently rated card payment company PayTap.

Commenting on winning their prize, Wrexham's Ijazz said: "Wow we have done it again! Absolutely delighted to win the National curry Awards 2021 for the best Indian restaurant in North Wales.

"We would like to thanks all our customers for there supports also special thanks to our local MP to come and join with us on House of Lords. This award is dedicated to our customers for supporting Ijazz
